Here’s What I’m Putting In My Natural Hair Now

hair 002
After over seven years of trying hair products (some of which were for natural hair and some of which were not), loving some of them, and seeing the ones that I love (mainly by Garnier) become discontinued, I am still left looking for reasonably priced, high-performance, moisturizing, and all around good products that won’t be here today and gone tomorrow. The problem for me, with buying hair products as a woman with Afro curly hair, is two-fold: when it’s good, it’s probably not so good for non-Afro hair, and it doesn’t last on the market, and also, if it is good, it might be more than I am willing to spend on my hair.

I went into this natural hair journey super pumped: I was committed to learning and embracing my natural texture, and I was excited to even to have a hair care routine (because typically, my routine was to roll out of bed, fluff my braids or comb through my chemically straightened hair before heading out). Now? I have to admit that sometimes my hair exhausts me. I have to admit that my hair is high-maintenance: it takes a hell of a lot to make it look good (both financially and with sheer effort), and for some time now, to combat that, my go-to styles have been wearing it half up or French braiding it.

But I am resolved to keep going. I embrace my natural texture (with all its difficulties), and I will continue to wear my hair as it grows out of my head.

So, because sharing is caring, here is what I am putting in my natural hair now…

Shampoo/cleanser & conditioners:

Camille Rose Natural’s Sweet Ginger Cleanser and Moroccan Pear Conditioner.

Hair Mask:

Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Heal & Seal Treatment

Note: I think this might be discontinued. I have some tubes left, so when they finish I will have to look for another one ( but I will probably just go back to Garnier’s Whole Blends Honey Hair Mask or something).

Leave-In Conditioner:

Proclaim Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-In Conditioner & Garnier Whole Blends Legendary Olive Leave-In Conditioner


Alikay Natural’s Essential Hair Growth Oil & Aunt Jackie’s Girls E-Blast Nourishing Scalp Remedy

Moisturizing cream:

Marc Anthony Strengthening Grow Long Leave-In

Styling products:

APHogee Curlific Moisture Rich Leave-In & Camille Rose Natural’s Curl Maker
